Is this Digital Cluster?
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
yes
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 years ago.
Should be a switch / button labeled " M/E " is located on the Digital Cluster.
Push the " M/E " button to change it to English
Customer: replied 8 years ago.

Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 years ago.
Sorry for the wait..
Was trying to find a picture of my old one.
There is a switch / button labeled " M/E " on the Dash either on the Cluster or near it.

If you cannot find it, then I will OPT Out & see if someone else can help
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
no i do not have anything like that on the cluster
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 years ago.
Look near the Cluster on the panels next to or below.
That is the only way it can change.
It may be close to the Odometer button
Customer: replied 8 years ago.
I've push and looked for this M/E and i keep saying that i dont have one on my car.
Expert:  Don 'Mo Lurch' replied 8 years ago.

If this is a 1989 Cadillac Deville your Dash should look like this & the Button should be on the left as indicated

Hello Thomas,

 

I have attached a reset proceedure for you. This seems to be a problem, and my tech info had a note in it from a technician from another shop. It seems to be the fix.

 

I attached the info below, with the whole discussion.

 

Scott.

we have a 1990 caddy sedan deville with no e/m switch to switch from metric to english any ideas. we have talked to the dealer and thay have no ideas. i think there must be some kind of combination in the climate control switch ???

 

 

WE FIXED THIS PROBLEM BY LOWERING THE LOWER DASH PANEL AND UNPLUGGING THE GRAY CONNECTOR ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF STEERING COLUMN. WHEN IT IS PLUGGED IN IT IS ON METRIC AND UNPLUGGED IS ENGLISH.
